  1. Will definitely pick up Wonder Man and Molecule Man, probably Strucker and Orb as well I'm pretty indifferent to the BAF though, unless they are doing a major push for the serpent squad elsewhere in the line. just feels like a generic big guy to me. Iron Man and Cap do look good just not really in need of these versions
  2. Uncanny Avengers was Rick Remender, not Ewing, unless i'm misremembering
  3. Not really interested in Ultimate Cap but most of that Avengers wave is pretty appealing. Hopefully the wave has a cool BAF not much interest in the x-men set, although i wouldn't mind adding Vertigo and Pretty Boy to the collection, neither are essential however. Still kinda sour about Mastermind/Wyngarde (and, to a lesser extent, Callisto) only being available thru the Wolverine 5-pack passing on the training uniform stuff but maybe this means a classic Banshee is only a few more years away 😛
  4. Walgreens has Sentry up for order for $22.99. Ordered him and finally ordered a nova figure as well. walgreens sentry
  5. Walgreens has most of their recent exclusives up for order on the website (No Sentry yet). Jigsaw, Zemo, Binary, Quasar and Nova are all up for order at $22.99
  6. Amazon has a $10 coupon on the renew your vows 2-pack amazon renew your vows 2-pack Aside from that have had some nice hauls recently with 2022 ML figures, all on sale woo hoo!!! from Benn's store I got 20th Cap and Firelord at great prices!! thanks!!!!! from target got the Peter & Ned 2-pack $10 off from gamestop got Toad (also Marvel select Titanium Man) 25% off each FOr those curious, with RYV I am up to 15 comic figures from 2022 plus 3 MCUs (wong, pete, ned).. all sale purchases except for 2 Walgreen exclusives. I do feel like i should try and support the line by getting a few more figures at msrp, but i dunno at $25 its hard to pull the trigger when i see these in stores and i don't feel much FOMO, whether its from being a long-time collector to seeing inventory move more slowly due to the higher prices, just feels like patience always pays off. Remaining on my must-get list for 2022 Havok Black Panther MCU She-Hulk MCU Moon Knight Plus a bunch of maybes. Let the sales continue!!!!!!
  7. wow a lot of ranting there. but of course the real question will be whether posters like this put their money where their mouth is and boycott this Sentry figure to show their displeasure, or whether they are all talk and in the end will shell out for the supposedly not-up-to-snuff version of the figure. I suspect most collectors who want a Sentry figure will buy this version despite any misgivings they have about grim reaper mold or whatever sentry ain't cap or thor, the character doesn't merit fancy premium anniversary editions like those characters have gotten. not interested in rehashing ancient debates about mr hyde or bucky cap mold etc
  8. feels like it would have been smarter to release this around the time of the MK series airing but whatever, easy pass, cool for folks who missed the 1st time around, i guess. Altho no BAF piece and more expensive this time around Re-use seems to be the name of the game more than ever nowadays so I expect to see more straight up re-released figures like this in upcoming months. Feels like this is another way they are taking a note from how the Black series does things
  9. Great sale and happy to support. Was psyched to get 20th Cap at that price and also Firelord for $20, plus ordered the remaining Fox x-figures I was missing (Cable and Mystique) for $10 apiece
  10. smart move and shows why they don't announce all the tiers from the get-go, it allows them to make some adjustments if the campaign isn't going well. I'm sure there will be many complaints about how Goblin Queen's should've just been a fan channel exclusive. also i'm sure some x-fans will be up in arms about potentially having to shell out for this haslab to get this character. Anyhow i think this is wise on hasbro's part. granted they ditched civvie Robbie so that might have allowed them to adjust the tiers, but it does leave open the possibility that Mephisto is actually final tier with a potential third tier at 11K rather than at 15K or whatever. Overall i still think this not a product most ML fans are going to go for, but i hope for the Robbie fans backing this that it succeeds. I am very much against the trend I'm seeing where people are trying to convince others not to back by claiming that if this haslab funds, hasbro will raise the prices across the board. I do not care for the insinuation that this haslab's backers would be to blame for a future price increase. Hasbro is gonna do what hasbro's gonna do, and i'm pretty sure any decisions about hiking prices will be much more heavily influenced by how well $25 figures sell, moreso than this Haslab. And yet i don't see these same folks suggesting boycotting MLs in general or that those buying figures should stop so that hasbro doesn't get any ideas about charging more.
  11. Yes, the collecting community can definitely choose to not back the Haslab. I'm not exactly sure how that's making hasbro "do anything". I feel like the takeaway from this will be not to bother with larger 1:12 vehicles, especially with the rider line now more or less defunct (rumoured skycycle not withstanding).
  12. I read somewhere a theory that the $42 is somehow leftover in their system from when MODOK went on clearance. with a reset coming i wonder if that would change the price to something closer to the $55 that everyone else is charging. iow feels like a fluke but kudos to those who've managed to take advantage, at least while it lasts
  13. tbh i prefer the version with pink skin that wears a full body red leotard (or whatever) over the mostly nude with red skin version, but not a big deal, still very recognizably Mephisto. Anyhow good looking figure but of course not worth shelling out for a Haslab just to get him imo so I guess i won't be adding him to the collection. I do think if the haslab fails they will find another way to release the figure in a year or two, possibly as part of an sdcc or pulse-exclusive set. Have a 3-pack with Mephiso and A) Strange & Doom B) Thanos and Nebula or C) Spidey & Mary Jane. Or have a "re-released tiers" 2-pack with Mephisto and Surfer. Whatever there are a lot of possibilities for pairing this "controversial" character with more mainstream ones, or of course they could go the other way and have a Mephisto / Blackheart 2 pack or whatever. Goblin Queen same deal would probably need to be some sort of only-hasbro exclusive like the Hellfire Club ladies, Having her as a tier for the GR haslab is likely to get some x-fans pretty upset but otoh seems unlikely this lab would hit that tier
  14. pretty excited about a lot of the x-men reveals in particular. will definitely be grabbing Longshot, Dark Phoenix, Avalanche, Spiral. Orb looks cool too!! Finding that moonstone pretty disappointing - wanted a more classic look and this one just looks so minimal. Molecule Man could be better imo but he's passable. 90s Cyke looks good, the cel shading doesn't seem too bad. Stryfe cool but dunno about 5-pack
  15. well i had tried to resist looking at this as i feel like this leak takes an awful lot of wind out of the sails of hasbro's ML teams hascon presentation. But i only held out for about 24 hours before looking a the leaks anyhow. i guess we all eat humble pie sometimes Part of me things that someone intentionally leaked it to distract from the recent negative reception Hasbro's been getting especially regarding the Haslab, but nah Hasbro likes all the streaming events etc way too much to let it all loose like this. And tbh i think Disney would be none too happy about some of these reveals given how hush-hush they usually are about everything. Definitely a bunch of must-have figures for me on that list, including Molecule Man, Safari Wonder Man, Blob, the Skrull 2-pack, Squadron Supreme 2-pack. There are a number of others i will probably get too, like Corsair, Strucker, Orb, Rose, Tarantula, Outback Rogue, the FF kids 2-pack, Hawkeye & Sky Cycle, Hulk/Banner and Rambeau/Doom 2-pack. I'm hoping the Marvel/Doom 2-pack has classic Monica and some sort of Beyonder-armor Doom look. I wonder how much they will want for that FF kids 2-pack. But overall at least 20 figures i'm interested in, so that's pretty good compared to this year. I am sure i will pick up some mcu figures as well but i'm getting much pickier when it comes to those. I'll avoid speculating further to avoid any spoilers i guess
